This is the Day

After a couple of tearful talks with God yesterday, and a 4 am snuggle session this morning, I'm feeling OK. Not great, but OK.

We'll be leaving in a few minutes to take Ethan to Duke. I'm praying his surgery starts sooner rather than later. He last ate at 3:00 this morning, and won't eat again until all this is over ... and then some. He's been a very happy baby all weekend, including this morning. That is a blessing in and of itself. We've had lots of good family time, and he's definitely enjoyed all the attention.

Thank you for all of your prayers so far. I'm praying for God's peace to cover us all, and ask that y'all do the same. It's going to be a very long day, and I'll do my best to update everyone through Twitter/Facebook and the blog.

I came across this verse yesterday and the irony of it all struck me:

This is the day the LORD has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
-Psalm 118:24

So, I will attempt to rejoice in such a dreadful day, knowing that it's God's day; the same God who knows everything about it already, and the One who is holding my sweet baby boy in His great big hands.

Thanks for visiting my blog about Jacob! We do have a similar story. Sounds like the main difference is that you guys did know prior to Ethan's birthday? I'm sure that was both a blessing and a curse.

We've been very fortunate. I'm praying for Ethan's recovery from his most recent surgery.. If I weren't so darn busy, I'd drive over there to meet you all & visit with you.

Which cardiologist does Ethan see? Since Jacob saw Dr. Rhodes and Dr. Delaney on admission, we saw Dr. Delaney until he left 18 months ago, and now we see Dr. Rhodes.
